This program offers a positive team setting where young sailors can learn and apply advanced racing skills. X-Boat Racing Team members begin their day at 1:00pm with a general meeting and review of previous days efforts. Sailors participate in a chalkboard lesson or land exercise emphasizing a key skill each day. After coaches issue a game plan for the practice or race ahead, sailors are then sent to rig and launch.
